Cox Wants Gamers To Pay 15 More For Elite Internet

Chris Welch writing for The Verge

Many people on Reddit are highly skeptical of Cox Elite Gamer. Cox claims subscribers can “control their connection from end to end,” but the company simply doesn’t have the sort of infrastructure to make good on that promise. Cox has no say on what happens to your gaming activity outside of its own network. The most it can do is determine the best path to a server. That’s doable, and it might be enough to produce at least some improvement in terms of latency and jitter.

What a scam.
